7:04 am
for our epemployees. it went on to explain, the department, when conditions warrant, take steps like this to balance our continued operations with security and safety. embassies have started announcing the closings on their website. israel, egypt, jordan qatar, saudi arabia, afghanistan, bangladesh and sudan. officials say this appears to be a real plot in the making and not just the normal chatter among terrorists talking about plots they would like to carry out. the fact that so many posts are being closed reflects one, the vagueness of the intelligence and, two, the bitter memories of the four americans who were killed in that attack on the benghazi compound on september 11th last year. >> thanks david. nsa leaker edward snowden is spending his first full day
7:05 am
outside the moscow airport now that he has temporary asylum in russia. he left a transit zone yesterday after living there for more than a month. in a moment we'll look at how washington is fuming but we start with charlie d'agata in london. >> it was about six weeks ago, they're all asking the question where's edward snowden? he's gone to ground again. his whereabouts in russia being kept secret. we're told he's in a secure location with american friends. and when he's comfortable, he may consider making an appearance to the media. this is a new picture of edward snowden's surprise getaway from the moscow airport that's been home for five weeks. he's getting his first taste of freedom today or what free dopamines to a wanted high-profile man in russia. his lawyer says snoden wants to start a new life there. he said job offers are already rolling in. the year-long asylum he's been
7:06 am
granted forbids travel outside russia. president putin said he's only be welcome in russia if the former national security agent stopped spilling secrets about the united states. praised senator putin for keeping his son safe. >> it's the honorable thing to do. and as not just a citizen of the united states but a global citizen of this planet an occupant of the earth. >> life in russia will be a far cry from the comforts of snowden's former home in hawaii. although moscow is home to the most billionaires in the world, low wages for average workers mean a lower standard of living. snowden may also struggle because he can't speak russian. and this man says snowden's options may be limited. >> i can't imagine in a way he will be in a suburban ghetto.
7:07 am
i think he will live a relatively comfortable, if not entirely free, life. >> not free because certainly people are going to be keeping tabs on him. >> exactly. >> when president putin first found out the snowden issue had landed in his lap, he dismissed it saying, i prefer not to deal with these issues. snoweden may have plenty of chances to squeal to russian intelligence agents now. >> urging president obama to consider cancelling an upcoming meeting in russia. major garrett is at the white house. >> reporter: when the russian government allowed snowden to land several weeks ago, the white house knew this day would come. now russia has ignored direct pleas from president obama and the famous reset in the famous relations have been jeopardized. lawmakers now urging a forceful
7:08 am
white house response. >> president obama battered away persistent questions about snowden during a meeting with the president of yemen. mr. obama did not want to personalize his sense of anger and disappointment leaving that to his spokesman. >> we see this as an unfortunate development and we are extremely disappointed by it. >> one that blindsided the white house and could imperil a planned obama/putin summit in moscow early next month. >> we are evaluating the summit in light of this. >> just after snowden arrived in russia, mr. putin tryobama tried to downplay it. >> i will not have one case of a suspect we're trying to extradite suddenly being elevated to the point i've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues. >> reporter: now the snowden impasse could affect all u.s.
7:09 am
and russia discussions, especially if more surveillance links occur. on capitol hill top lawmakers urged mr. obama to punch back. senator john mccain said putin's move constituted a, quote, deliberate effort to embarrass the united states. adding, we cannot allow this action by putin to stand without serious repercussions. democrat chuck schumer urged the president to move the g-20 summit calling the situation a blow to u.s./russia relations. >> russia has stabbed us in the back and each day that snowden is allowed to roam free is another twist of the knife. >> reporter: the g-20 summit in st. petersburg is say huge platform for russia. the 20 largest economies will be there. far too much business for the united states to skip that event it the planned putin/obama summit just before in moscow is probably not going to happen. >> major garrett, thanks. surprising comments from secretary of state john kerry about drone strikes in pakistan. and this morning the state
7:10 am
department may be trying to walk back those words. our margaret brennan is traveling with kerry. she filed this report from vienna. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry left pakistan today with the message that u.s. drone strikes will end very very soon. pakistan considers the u.s. policy of targeting militants with unmanned aircraft to be a violation of their sovereignty. he told pakistan tv i think the program will end as we've eliminated most of the threat and continue to eliminate it. prime minister sharif had earlier appealed to him to halt the program but these comments went further than president obama who said the drone program would not end entirely. hours later, the state department issued a statement, saying there is no time line for a halt and indicated the comments were the sectretary's hope, not a change in policy. >> in no way would we ever deprive ourselves a tool that would help us fight a threat as
7:11 am
it arises. >> reporter: margaret brennan, vienna. >> a source tells cbs news major league baseball will impose penalties related to its drug investigation by moonednday. espn says talks between the league and alex rodriguez have stalled. don dahler is at yankee stadium. >> reporter: a major league baseball team executive tells us more than a dozen big leelague players face suspensions for their alleged involvement. and the biggest name of course in terms of fame is alex rodriguez it the 38-year-old has been rehabbing from a quad strain as well as hip surgery that kept him out of the season. he played a simulated game as well as had a turkoutworkout in tampa yesterday. this is his 20th season. the highest paid player in all of baseball. punishments he faces range from a 250-gape suspension or the
7:12 am
nuclear option for the commissioner, a lifetime ban. the man who blew the whistle on the clinic tells our station in miami that he hopes that doesn't happen. >> i think it would be a shame if he got some kind of lifetime ban. because i don't think he deserves that. i really don't think he deserves that. but mlb needs to make an example of somebody because otherwise this is just going to happen tomorrow next year following on. >> reporter: a source familiar with negotiations tell us monday will be the day the announcement is made. the thinking being that players whose teams are likely to make the playoffs will have fulfilled their suspension if it starts monday. >> don dahler, thanks. cleveland kidnapper ariel castro starting the first day of his 1,000-year prison sentence. in court, castro apologized but he also said the fbi should have caught him earlier. he went on to describe a happy home. as dean reynolds reports, one of
7:13 am
his victims set the record straight. >> nobody shoulder have to go through what i went through, nor anybody else not even the worst enemy. >> reporter: she is 32 now, the longest held captive. >> day turned into night. night turned into day. years turned into eternity. >> reporter: beginning in 2002 she suffered five miscarriages in captivity, each one brought on by either beatings or starvation at the hands of castro. >> i spent 11 years. now your hell is just beginning. >> reporter: the women lived in a house with boarded up windows, 100 feet of chains and trip alarms on the doors. a government expert on traumatic stress said knight and her fellow captives gina dejesus and amanda berry have a very long road. >> the damage that was done does not go away. they have life sentences.
7:14 am
>> reporter: and so does castro. life without parole plus 1,000 years to be exact. the sentence that cape after his emotional disjointed attempt at self-justification. >> i am a normal person. i am not a monster. i am sick. i have an addiction. >> reporter: castro blamed his violent streak on his late wife. said his sexual obsession was due to abuse as a child it and insisted the sex he had with his captives was consensual. >> there were times what they would even ask me. >> reporter: he said he missed his daughter born after he raped amanda berry. >> she never saw any violence in the house, your honor. if anybody were to question her, she'll say the opposite. she'll say my dad is the best dad in the world. >> reporter: judge michael russo took strong issue with that. >> i'm not sure there's anybody else in america that will agree with you. >> reporter: minutes later, ariel castro disappeared.
7:15 am
for "cbs this morning," dean reynolds, cleveland. >> and we don't know if whitey bulger will testify in his trial but his lawyers want to show a softer side of the reputed mobster. they released pictures including one of bulger holding a goat and posing with parrots. the move backfired. in one photo, bolder sits with a man in clerical garb a defrocked priest who was accused of abusing teenage boyed in the 1980s. >> lackluster news about the job market. 162,000 new jobs were added in july, the fewest since march. it did bring down the unemployment rate to 7.4%. the lowest rate in 4 1/2 years. jill schlesinger is with us. this is kind of a -- number isn't it? >> really so-so. below estimates, below what
7:16 am
we've been averaging in the last year of 190,000 jobs. two-thirds of those jobs created were really not great jobs. they're part time jobs. so i'm concerned about that piece of it. wages down just a touch. so i think this is an interesting report in one sense. even though we've added 1.34 million jobs this year i think it puts the federal reserve in an interesting situation. we thought they were going to change their policy. this is kind a weak report. maybe they wait till september. >> you think it delays any big decisions from the fed? >> it could. the fed has two different policies it is pursuing. the long-term interest rate policy. a lot of people thought they'd ease up on those bond purchases in september. maybe they will wait till december. who knows. the short term which is pegged to the unemployment rate well maybe that will start to change. we have to get to about 6 1/2% on the unemployment rate before the fed said it would actually start to increase those short-term rates. >> if we keep it this rate jill, i mean that's 6.5%
7:17 am
target, how long does it take us to get there? >> a long time. we're probably not getting there till december 2014. which is probably why the fed said we're probably not going to change short-term rates till the middle of 2014. so time will tell. >> what does it say at this point? >> that they are fine with the staffs they have and they're not seeking to build out payrolls till the economy starts to improve more substantially. that is nothing to really celebrate at this point. >> how long does it take -- i mean, what is it going to take for them to start doing this? >> they'll have to see more demand for their goods and services. if you're an employer you have to wait to see if people want your stuff. that's the leelreal job of the employer to try to gauge that. and it is the biggest court victory for the governments stemming from the 2008 financial crisis. a former goldman sachs trader known as fabulous fab has been
7:18 am
found liable in a fraud case. a new york jury found fabrice tourre guilty. >> the stomach bug is deepening. the cdc says there are nearly 400 reported cases of cyclospora in 16 states. the federal government says that may not be the original source. >> and it is time now to show you some of this morning's headlines. "the new york times" says the fbi has concluded it could not have prevented the boston marathon bombings. the agency has been criticized for not paying closer attention after a request from russia's intelligence agency but the bureau says federal laws blocked agents from conducting a more extensive investigation. >> "usa today" says the international olympic committee has been reassured that athletes

7:31 am
nickname carlos danger. >> and the world has a new superhero. her name burqa avenger. but it's her wardrobe that's leading the controversy. you'll meet the pop star who created the character. >> and danger on the high seas could be taking on a new meaning. for the first typeime, the cruise industry voluntarily releasing information about crime on ships. they say 237 alleged serious crimes took place on norwegian, royal caribbean and carnival cruises. congress pressured the companies to reveal the numbers. all right, they did this because congress has been pressuring them to do it. do we bleachelieve the numbers? >> the numbers are a little higher than you might suspect. 237 reported alleged crimes. they range from homicide assault, rape, sexual assault,
7:32 am
missing u.s. nationals and theft greater than $10,000. so while the numbers seem to be a little bit higher the problem of course is all those things are reported not necessarily by individuals or the u.s. cruise lines s lines. the question is how are those statistics actually reported. >> you're talking about 237 crimes but this isn't, in fact everything, is it? the smaller crimes aren't on this les. >> that's right. even though it's a good first step. think about this. alleged theft of over $10,000. what about missing i-pads watches, jewelry? the other problem is how is it broken out? these are cruise lines reporting these themselves but not by individual ships. or not even by dates of the reported occurrence. it's very difficult to interpret these statistics in a meaningful way. >> one of the concerns peep ss people have is these cruise ships, with the number of
7:33 am
it's bigger than some towns, and yet there's no police on board. >> the only police presence on board most ships are a security officer employed by the ship themselves it themselves. if you have a small town, which is what these cruise ships approximate in terps of the terms of the numbers, you have a police department and crime statistics reported on a regular basis. what this is a good first step. as senator rockefeller wants, he wants legislation that will provide a police presence on board ships and will break out these crime statistic, among all the cruise lines. the cruise lines that reported these statistics are the big players, carnival, royal caribbean and norwegian, but they're not all the cruise lines. >> peter greenberg thanks. the most watched mayoral candidate in the country presses on with his campaign this morning. anthony weiner is turning into a political punching bag for his competitors in new york city. elaine quijano looks at the

twice using the phrase -- spanish for enough already. while weiner was referring to probing questions, some think it's enough for his political am bixs. still, the senior white house adviser for politico says weiner feeds off the criticism and won't back down. >> he has dreamt about being mayor and being in political office basically his whole life. he's been in political office essentially his entire adult life. >> reporter: with the primary a month away and poll numbers dropping, weiner's campaign and hopes for redemption face an uphill battle. >> he was hoping that he would get into this race it would wipe away the memories of 2011. instead, 2013 has brought a lot of these memories back. instead cleaning him up be has gotten him even dirtier this time around. >> reporter: elaine quijano, new york. >> really defining the debate in new york.

7:44 am
they're taliban-type avengers who try to prevent pakistani girls from getting an education. burka avenger was created by one of pakistan's biggest pop stars. he came up with the superhero idea three years ago around the same time that a real-life pakistani student named malala began speaking out. they later tried to assassinate her. like that real life role model it sends the message that education trumps violence. >> she doesn't punch, kick shoot anything. all she does is clunks people on the head with books or throw peps. there's an underlying message with that. the importance of education and the pen is mightier than the sword. >> reporter: the foft has just started to hear about the

program. it gets limited distribution. what has gotten attention is what she's wearing. a burka, viewed by in as a symbol of oppression. she told me she feels the cartoon glam ororizes it. it's it's submission of women. >> he said people are missing the point. >> superheroes hide their identity. in this case she's a school teacher. she doesn't wear a veil, a head skaf. but she only wears the burka to hide her identity like a superhero would. >> reporter: she's battling violations and others. maybe disney princesses can

♪ ♪ good morning. they just issued a traffic alert now through the altamont pass eastbound 580 approaching north flynn. there's a stalled out big rig blocking one lane. so they just issued it. you can expect to find some delays for a while. also, westbound 4, there was an earlier accident approaching somersville. it's now clear but it's still pretty sluggish in those westbound lanes. if you are heading towards the macarthur maze, big delays. once you reach the bay bridge toll plaza, though, things improve at least in the fastrak lanes. the metering lights remain on.
